There we were, caught in rush hour traffic along the Federal Highway heading to Cheras. It was bumper to bumper and …. 20 minutes in, we all mutually agreed to wait it out by getting ourselves fed. After all, it was close to dinner time and so, we decided to take a detour via Old Klang Road.
Aimlessly driving eventually led us to the row of shops near/next to Faber Tower, Taman Desa. We parked, decided to explore and found Ruay Thai.
It is a nice neighborhood restaurant. There were plenty of seats, it was airy and comfortable. Customer service was good, they were friendly and attentive. Food arrived rather fast, within 10 minutes after ordering.
Fried Glass Noodle with Shrimps & Chicken, 12 ringgit + Tomyum Seafood Fried Rice, 14 ringgit + Traditional Tomyum Seafood Soup, 25 ringgit + Lemongrass Water (Cold), 4 ringgit + Pandan Water, (Hot)
Okay, Food here was sedapppppppp! Let me start with the Tomyum Soup. Many Thai eateries I’ve visited offer this particular soup in a rather watery form, sometimes a lil too watery for my liking. The one here, is watery too but a tad thicker and with way more flavor. Believe me, that slight thickness does make all the difference. It is 25 ringgit but really worth it. After all, it comes in a whole pot and between the four of us, we all managed to fill our bowls twice. It came lots of ingredients. We ordered the ‘seafood’ option – they were clams, squids, prawns, tomatoes, greens. Lots of stuffs. Totally worth the 25 ringgit.
Tomyum Seafood Fried Rice was recommended, it apparently was one of their most popular option for fried rice. After having a taste, I totally agree. It was really good. The rice had plenty of the Tomyum flavor and then put if some squids, prawns … ooo yes, very nice!
The noodle was not as awesome as the other two dishes but it was tasty. Their Pad Thai was the recommended noodle but we decided to give it a miss considering we almost always give it a go at any Thai restaurants. We decided to give their ‘Mee Hoon’ version a go this time and it was good. It had flavor with a generous portion of noodles + egg + prawns. It was a lil dry though but we rectified it by pouring some tomyum soup on it and it was awesome from then.
Would I head back here?
Oooo yeah! Most definitely.
